    Unnecessarily Stressful

    Store Team Member (Former Employee) Papillion, NE

    ProsGood Co-workers
    Little to no supervision
    Decent Starting Wage

    ConsHad to Buy most of the uniform
    Horrible Scheduling Manager
    The only way you could work is if you worked an 8 hour shift (I was in HS at the time, so this sucked)

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide Uniforms, or up the pay, or both

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Large company with great loyalty base of customers.

    Store Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking with customers and employees is fun and fulfilling. Hourly employees are encouraged to work full-time with exceptional benefits. All that's required is to prove you are a hard worker.

    ConsAs a store manager, I rarely found backing from my Supervisor. When she visited my store, she praised the cashiers and kitchen workers, but behind closed doors, was unsupportive and critical.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupervisors and District Managers have difficult and heavy workloads, but they lack customer service skills toward their store managers and hourly staff who have their own heavy loads to carry, and deserve support and appreciation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Small Town problems, corporate politics

    Store Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsOpportunity for advancement, if you are willing to sacrifice. Plenty of training available. My immediate supervisor was a really good boss. Just had too much on his plate

    ConsIt seems like they sit in the corporate offices writing policies and procedures without considering the "real people" who are out there making the company successful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget the people at the bottom....for they are the ones who got you to the top!
